Drawing Lessons from the Great Masters - robert beverly hale

I want to draw manga, but I'm not a jap. What are my options? Post it online? Is it even a thing?
I tried to do a research and couldn't find anything. There's some strange western webcomics and korean cringe drama bullshit but its not what I have in mind. I've never seen classic original manga outside japanese magazines, especially something made by non-jap dude. The closest thing I found is some korean guy who now works in shonnen jump, that's it.

get your comic done and come back when you've written a good arc-start o7. dont think about the readers yet. ill see you around
Its hard since they are racist and editors will actively sabotage or prevent you from joining, but you can break in if you want/skilled enough. Use fake pen name though.
well my initial plan was to just upload it online somewhere and try to clown my way up to gaining followers, like making some social media tik tok attentionwhoring and then sell merch/accessories/patreon donations to receive money from it

A lot of genuinely talented artists stop at just making the art extremely sexy, but people making actual porn will often stagnate, probably because it's easier to get a following that way, but you can't use porn in a portfolio, obviously.

Also, women for some reason draw really high level porn. Like, amazing anatomy and poses. Maybe the difference is that women aren't entirely cumbrained and focus on more factors than just release.
You and I know that most, if not all artists really aren't cumbrained.
Can't study anatomy if you are horny at nudes

The yaoi proportions say otherwise

The only lesson AI can teach you is that IT'S OVER, YOU ARE NOT NEEDED AS AN ARTIST
Yeh, that's pretty much all it's good for. That and concept art.

It must have been a sign of the times, but I’ve always had a thing for Lola bunny

It’s interesting, I posted something to friends and family with my drawings and nobody liked it. It’s like I don’t share the same taste with friends and family, but I’ve cultivated them into part of my everyday life, but I have created a group of followers online that share the same taste, but I’d never be friends with them in real life.

Just funny to realize that I really painted myself into a corner.

You know, the only people who identify me by what I draw are you anons. Nobody else IRL knows what I draw as who I am. It’s as if nothing was lost for them, and it was only taken away from you.

Thanks! I missed drawing too much to stop

I'm getting the feeling you're not a fan of my work.
But I'll take the "1990s French Nickelodeon" part as a compliment.

what happened to /30/ y.o. threads?
186 replies and 33 images omitted. Click here to view.
Digital fits well with my current lifestyle. I only have a very small room to work in, such that my bed takes up a good majority of the space. Trying to work with paints in there would be awkward at least. I do enjoy working with pencils and marker though, and I have a bit of space dedicated to sketching.
As well, I generally like working with computers. Disregarding the social media aspect, making computers do what I want them to is interesting, and computer generated imagery (not counting AI in my case) is really fun.
>computer generated imagery (not counting AI in my case)
Do you mean like demoscene visuals or something else?
These are so moe
I like how you did the water highlight. Surrealism is always a pleasure to see.

>30 y.o. really prefer traditional art over digital?
Youre not wrong, its very relaxing media to work with. I know there are plenty of younger people who like to oil paint.
It's one of my favorite medias to work with but I haven't painted in some years because I dont have the room. Right now I just do digital and my art has gone from a more realistic style to a cartoony(anime) one.

> Do you mean like demoscene visuals or something else?
Not only that, but also fractals, procedural generated imagery, even video games to a degree. There's a lot of cool stuff computers can do that are unique and worth taking a look at.
The demoscene in particular has been a inspiration for me to keep doing artwork, the raw creative energy was infectious and made me look at computers in a very different light.

Its really annoying, especially at night.
When I run in to that, I just start making marks on the paper. Lines, circles, scribbles, anything to remove the gunk from my brain. Staying stuck in analysis paralysis is no good.

If you are a /beg/inner or /int/ermediate in art, please use this thread to post pieces for critique or ask for advice.
Use this thread instead of making new threads or post in the drawthread with fundamental exercises.

RESIZE YOUR IMAGES TO ~1000 PIXELS wide using one of the following methods:
1. screenshot the image and post that instead
2. change camera capture settings to something smaller
3. send to computer and resize in MSPaint

Not the OP but any suggested canvas size for someone who wants to do simple BW sketches?
I'd just go with 1000x1000 and increase it if I need to, but I'm also constrained by my 2014 computer.
Don't use it, they promised not to use AI but they are using AI
I think they promised the auto shadow thing before the image generator everyone got mad at, so it's different to them.

Do the projects anyway and stop worrying so much about failing.
If you're waiting to draw until you are good enough, you will be waiting forever.

I think there can be some alien value to AI art. Not in any effort for perfection or replacement or general automation, but just in the utterly fascinating ways it fucks up and creates horrors a human would never make. Objects that aren't supposed to be anything. Mistakes no human would make. The general fucked-up-ness of it all, basically.

It's flawed, and that - that's its sole beauty.

Because everything out of it will be generic and aping on greater work done before it, making it generic trash...WE HAVE THAT. WE DON'T NEED A SEA OF GENERIC TRASH.
I agree, I find the unintentional abominations, created by AI, to be more interesting than 99% of what artists draw.
The only thing AI generated images brought to me is an idea of how "art created" by an AI look like currently. Beyond that, may this automated insult to artistic creation burn in hell
Stage 4: Bargaining
This. We are about to see some of the biggest and most epic struggles in the coming years over this technology and its consequences.

How do I know when enough detail is added to a face? I don't want everything to look like an old person.
I have the same question
I think its really about true shapes and proportions, you can draw a face that tells it belongs to an old person without the detailed "old person" wrinkles.
Perhaps try drawing cartoonish, a bit overdone facial gestures without even thinking about it too much - a bit like croquis-style, do a lot, do them fast, do not go into detail. Max 2 minutes per face. Only once you are done with a good load, start analyzing and see if you have variety in ages and what exactly are those features that give you the impression. I've found this a good practice to gain more liveliness into the faces I draw in general, but if you are aiming to become a human printer this might be a useless tip.
And I just realised I didnt quite answer the question, I guess what I mean is that its not the details or the amount of them that makes the subject look a certain age, its the accuracy of shapes and protortions that change over the time. If the amount of details determinates how old the subject looks, you might want to literally go back to the drawingboard and fix those basics.

The details of an old face are partly formed by the repetition of expressions. The flesh loses its smoothness, elasticity and firmness and begins to sag. Think of the major forms of the face and of creasing, drooping or shrinkage around them. Aging also alters the general shape of the head.
